Women, Health and Action

Overview

What makes us healthy? We all know about fruits and vegetables, but did you know that the 12 determinants of health identified by Health Canada are: income and social status, employment, education, social environments, physical environments, healthy childhood development, personal health practices and coping skills, health services, social support networks, biology and genetic endowment, gender, and culture.1 What kind of society we live in has a huge impact on our health. That's why this health fact sheet isn't just about eating apples, it's about changing the world. It's about women taking control of our own health and our society's health.
